Supreme Court to hear arguments on whether public law school can deny recognition to Christian group that discriminates against gays

NPR has a preview of the arguments in Christian Legal Society v. Martinez, which promises to become a landmark case on freedom of association, gay rights, and whether discriminatory religious groups are entitled to public funding and other benefits. Specifically, the case tests "whether state colleges and universities can deny official status and subsidies to student groups that bar homosexuals and other groups from membership. The case could affect public colleges and universities across the country, and it puts the court in the middle of a long struggle by Christian activists who contend that their rights are violated on campus by secular rules."
